Fed Market Friendly As Usual…. Stock Market Caring Less And Less….

If you’ve noticed over the past many weeks and really two to three months, the market hasn’t had the ability to break out to new highs. We’ve seen dramatic, if not historical, measures taken by the ECB with regards to unprecedented levels of free bank cash with a new QE program of over one trillion per year, not to mention that it is open ended. We’ve seen our Fed, Ms. Yellen, today say rates will stay low. That she has the markets back. Of course, those aren’t her exact words, but they sure are implied, and the market knows it. The markets initial reaction, as always, was to try higher. It always tries higher. This time higher didn’t hold. More and more measures are being taken globally to prop up markets and their respective economies, but the measures taken are having less of a positive effect.
